A Traffic Infraction is usually the Precursor to any DUI Investigation

As any Seattle DUI attorney or Bellevue DUI attorney will tell you, the bulk of DUI investigations commence after an alleged traffic infraction (i.e. speeding, following too closely, failure to use a turn signal) is observed by a law enforcement officer. Washington State drivers should be well aware that State Patrol has now been tasked with looking out for “Left-Lane Campers”. Left-Lane Campers are considered to be those drivers that clog our highways by going slower than other traffic in the so called “Fast-Lane”. Prior to now, troopers have been authorized to simply warn Left-Lane Campers of their violation, RCW 46.61.100. Perhaps in an effort to increase revenue, or perhaps to get more DUI drivers off our roadways, troopers are now mandated to not only contact those folks who are considered to be Left-Lane Campers, but to also cite them for the traffic infraction. In the not so distant future, Washington drivers may even see warning signs to this effect on our freeways.  Currently, there is a Washington State Patrol video regarding the agency’s Left-Lane Camper initiative at seati.ms/f5kejh.
